The Health Benefits of Brussels Sprouts

Did you know brussels sprouts are a vitamin C powerhouse? One cup of brussels sprouts contains 124% the daily recommended value of vitamin C, where a serving of orange juice of an equal caloric amount (about 39 calories) provides 72%.

So why not try roasting some brussels sprouts instead of slurping down another glass of OJ to fend off colds! On top of their vitamin C content, brussels sprouts contain fiber, vitamin K, folate, manganese, vitamin b6, a wide range of other nutrients, and even a few grams of protein.
